Some of you might have been following my Sasa.com saga on Twitter. Essentially Sasa.com took nearly 1 month to deliver my package due mainly to their inefficiency and lack of communication. I’ll detail the saga later.
Instead on a happier note, I’ll show you what I got from them that took so long to arrive 🙂
Can you say “Whoa! That’s a LOT of cleansers and lotions!” 😀 😀
I’d run out of my Hada Labo SHA Moisturizing Lotion for a while and everyone kept asking me how it compares to Juju Aquamoist so I picked up a bottle… actually 4 bottles of different lotions to try. No I clearly do not do things by halves 😛
I saw the Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil in a special package deal so I picked that one up too. As well as the Kanebo Naive cleansing oil. I’m set for cleansing oils for a while! 😀
And to round up the cleanser trio is the Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Wash. Its going to be a disaster if I like these considering I can’t get them here 😀
Last of all is an interesting item that caught my eye from Kose Softymo – Hot Cleansing Gel. haha! I don’t have much of a blackhead problem around my nose. Not anymore anyway so I’m just mostly amused by this one. I’ll take it for a quick run and let you know how it is 😉
Have you tried anything from my haul that you’d like to share or warn me about? I’ve already started using one of the Juju Aquamoist lotions so you could expect some feedback pretty soon 🙂

great haul!!! long waiting with all those saga, in the end it’s all pay off with all those lovely things…
hmm… I don’t know if it paid off, but I’m glad everything came in in one piece 😀
That’s a haul alright 😉
A haul and a half! 😀 I’m set for lotions for a while eh?
Woots. I shall haul from the Sasa in HK meself when I get there wahahha ^.^
Hey hey! That’s awesome! When are you headed there? 😀
Erm…. Mid december?
What fun 🙂
sorry to peek ^_^ LOL but if you’re up for a bloggers meetup in HK do let me know!
*butting in* You’re based in HK? I know now who to check out if I visit HK next ! 😉
whoa that’s a lot of cleansers and lotions! LOL
can you please do a review on each of the Aquamoist toners? (are they toners? coz i’m confused about japanese skincare names, to me lotions = moisturizers but clearly they mean something else XD) have been wondering about Aquamoist for ages everytime I see them on local drugstores…
just read your review on Hada Labo toner! I’m going to pick that up when i finish my Orbis toners 🙂
Hiya Jennifer, in Japanese skincare “lotion” is the “toner” step but it does not serve the same functions as “western toners”. I’ve got some thoughts on this here.
Gosh!!! Awesome haul! 😛 *drooling* already haha
Haha… thanks! Have you tried any of the Juju Aquamoist stuff? I know its available here too.
OMG You will grow 3 heads to use these up in a relatively passable time? Joking HAHA But really, it’s a lot, but it’s easier to buy a lot at the same time and not paying shipping for every other item.
Waiting for the reviews 😉
roflol!! yes yes i should grow another 2 heads 😀 I was trying to hit free ship 😉 and I find I use up these things quite quickly so we’ll see 😀 Expect the reviews to be quite spaced out though 😉
This is a nice one!! My bf is heading to Japan next month..I wasn’t sure what to ask him to get me there. Any recommendation?
If budget allows, try Jill Stuart (although at RM300/palette even I passed) or brands we don’t get here e.g. Integrate, Lavshuca, Suqqu etc. I’d go hit up the drugstores e.g. Matumoto Kiyoshi but its easy to get confused because nothing is written in English and most brands aren’t easily recognizable. Many brands we can find here may be cheaper here due to exchange rate and taxes. If you are into cute stuff, or clothes I’m afraid I can’t help you. All I got there was UniQlo LOL!
I tried the Kanebo Naive Cleansing Oil, but I still prefer my Kose Softymo ones. Those wash off more easily than the Kanebo one. 🙂
Oho! Thanks for the heads up! I shall take note
LOL I got my haul in less than 3 weeks though 😛
The Juju Aquamoist essence is good, love it to bits 😀
By the way, shipment delayed for at least 2 weeks and did you managed to claim your free gift due to their inefficiency? 😛
No hence my getting pissed at them. I ordered just a day before the “announcement” and my emails were never answered. Still, its good to know the Juju Aquamoist is good 🙂
that’s hell of cleansers for one face 😛 can i crown you as the ‘blogger with most cleansers’ now? 😛
3 only la… New ones hehe 😉

I jealous 🙁 My STUPID status still PACKING! I just sent them another e-mail. They can BET THEIR BALLS that I’m gonna write a negative seller review on sasa.com. I’m ok with waiting but hello! Stop sending me emails saying that if I order now, I get compensated. If I ordered before the official announcement, I don’t. I mean, my wait is LONGER and you’re not compensating me? Like WTF?! It’s not even about the “free gift”. If you can get my stuff over without taking a month, I’d be a happy camper, free gift or not. But you can’t and you’re not even gonna show that you’re sorry. You’re just telling me “too bad”. UGH! So pissed. And I can’t even threaten them because I want my things.
ok, sorry for ranting on here 🙁
That really sucks!! I think we ordered about the same time? I hope they get your package out the door soon 🙁
Great haul! You know you are lucky that you got your package already =P I ordered on Septermber (!!) 21st and my package is still not sent. I sent Sasa several emails and always get that sucky standard reply. Sasa really has one of the worst customer services i ever encountered. If their prices weren´t so good I´d totally stop ordering from them!
Hiya Kathi! Oh boy! Is Sasa.com usually that inefficient? My first experience with them was a good one but this was horrible and I never got a single reply, standard or not to my email! But you are sorta right. With their prices and selection, its hard to find an alternative
Oh my. My first and second experience with them were good. Just that recently they have relocated their warehouse and took decades to sort out the packages. However, if pay via Paypal, if they don’t expedite the shipment within 45days, we can still file a dispute
Hope it helps 😉
Yup! My order went in just as they did their move. I did pay by paypal and perhaps that’s why they expedited mine? hehe
I have recently got the Kanebo Naive Cleansing Oil to try and it’s not as magical as I thought it would be. It’s my first cleansing oil and a little disappointing 🙁
psst! I tried it yesterday and you’re right. I didn’t like it too boo! I would recommend Softymo or even Kanebo Freshel over this one.
wow! big haul~~ Nvr ordered from Sasa before but their prices are quite low… Can’t wait for a review on the hot cleansing gel:) haha… I have problems with blackheads… so annoying…
Yup their prices are pretty good sadly!
Hi! Just wondering why did you purchase the Juju Aquamoist from Sasa HK when it’s available at Watson’s locally? I feel encouraged to buy stuff from Sasa HK too now! There’s some (heck, a lot!!) stuff I’ve been eying online for some time now…hehe 🙂
Haha… good question. Its because I had funds in paypal and I don’t have time to go out so since I was picking up some stuff from Sasa.com I decided to just get it online. I’m not sure of the prices locally though or how they compare. You could wait for my review on Sasa.com to come soon and decide if you’re prepared to risk it 😉
Well, I realised that the Juju Aquamoist essence at major pharmacies in Malaysia retailed at MYR98.90, sometimes even after discount from Jusco pharmacy at 15% is MYR84.10. Concluded that the ones retailed at Sasa.com amounting to MYR62.65 (USD19.10) is still worth getting though 😉
Wait! Do you mean the Juju Aquamoist lotion or essence? Coz I’m learning that the lotion is pretty good and I paid something like US$11.50. But if its RM98.90 here, crap! I’d find it hard to buy here. Do you know the price of the lotion anyway? 🙂 Cos you know, I don’t get out much these days 😉

Hi! I had been wanting to buy some cleansing oils from Sasa.com but I am afraid that I will be liable for custom tax or maybe products being detained by the custom.
How likely are the chances of products being detained if they were to be purchased from Sasa.com?
Paris B says
So long as you don’t buy over RM500 it won’t be taxed. I wasn’t for the few purchases I made. But if they do check your package and find you’ve bought multiples of 1 item then they may deem it as an import and tax accordingly.
